Mascara -Too Faced -Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara

foto

I used to wear L'oreal Lash Architect, then switched to Benefit They're Real. They're Real had a slightly waxy feel but added volume and did curl my lashes significantly. I was very happy with it. After not wearing mascara for 3 years, I jumped on board the fake lash trend and tried Maybelline's Lash Sensational after reading good reviews. I persisted with it for 3 weeks but found it really did nothing for me. Not much volume, very little curl, irritating clumps. The jump in price for Benefit's They're Real had me searching for something as good but not as expensive. A MECCA assistant recommended Too Faced's Better Than Sex. I bought the smaller tube to try. I overdid it at first (3-4 coats), which made it go thick and spidery and made me look like an aged heroine addict. Next try, I did two light coats on my upper lashes and one very light one on my lower lashes. The effect was very pretty. IMO it volumes better than any previous mascara I've tried. The product is VERY DRY though which I don't like. It encourages over application and makes it seem like you've been given an empty tube of mascara. This encourages the urge to keep re-dipping the brush for product. The brush is quite squat and thick and I find I have to look down to apply the mascara otherwise it will dot my upper lid with product. I've read people complaining it shifts during the day, but I haven't experienced that as yet (maybe it depends on how hot the day is?). I don't think they can justify the price they charge for it, but seeing as how mascaras that promise to give the same effect (YSL & Benefit) are even pricier, this is a *slightly* cheaper alternative. I wish the company would address the dryness of the product so customers are getting more bang for their buck.

TLDR: Did what it promised. Don't over apply. Dryness of product needs fixing. Will likely repurchase, but will also keep looking for a replacement that delivers similar results but isn't as dry.

PROS: Gives noticeable lift and volume, not quite false lashes, but good enough!

CONS: Very dry product, pricey, over application can leave you looking like an old whore.

Lips -Too Faced -Melted Latex Liquefied Lipstick

on 10/4/2017 12:05:00 PM

I will start by saying I'm a girl who really loves her gloss. Sheer or opaque, sticky or a tinted oil, glittery or not. I have many glosses in my collection, and this is one I really quite like. It is most similar to the AoBH glosses, or the MUFE lipglosses. It is a thick, richly pigmented gloss with a faintly sweet dessert-like smell. The smell dissipates quickly and has never bothered me even though I am sensitive. Texture wise, it feels heavy on the lips, but hydrating. Despite this, it doesn't bleed, it doesn't feather, and it doesn't smear (unlike what I've experienced with similar glosses in the past). I ended up wearing this to a work meeting where we ate three courses! It faded evenly, didn't break down from the grease in the food, and didn't smear past my regular lip line. There was still some product on my lips after dinner, and I was impressed.

I think my favourite thing about these glosses is the applicator. It is similar to a doefoot but has a wedge (similar to baking beauty sponges) as a tip. This makes application so easy and precise, I love it. While the regular packaging is a little bulky, it's sturdy so I don't mind. I find the gloss to be quite sticky, but it does warm up on the lips and it doesn't feel gummy or migrate onto the teeth or around the inside of the mouth. While I prefer the more nude tones of this gloss, I really do like it and I would recommend it if you like the AoBH glosses. I think you'll like these even better!

Bronzers -Too Faced -Bronzed Peach Melting Powder Bronzer – Peaches and Cream Collection

on 10/3/2017 11:53:00 PM

foto

This has the most fascinating finish. It's called Toasted Peach. It feels like a cream, and it melts into skin in a creamy way, but it leaves a soft powder finish. Like when you mix corn starch and water you can't make up your mind if it's wet or dry, a solid or a liquid...that's the texture of this bronzer. The color is a sexy, modern bronze...nothing like the glittery oranges bronzers used to be. The texture is what makes it stay on till you take it off. It doesn't need to be reapplied! I just sort of let it melt a tiny bit from the heat of my hand, then I use my brush or sponge or finger to apply the bronzer. I use it on my face, but my favorite way to use it is as eye shadow. It could probably be used as lip color as well, but I haven't tried this yet. Everything from the packaging to the elegant formulas make The Peaches and Cream Collection one of my all time favorites.

Liquid -Too Faced -Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation

on 10/3/2017 11:44:00 PM

This foundation in SAND actually matches me perfectly. The texture is amazing, light, but it leaves skin looking perfected, like old-time movie stars. I have somewhat oily skin, and I use sunscreen every day. This weightless foundation doesn't get cakey or streak or oxidize...it just makes my skin look lovely and it lasts all day. Finally, a matte foundation that does not a have glowy or greasy cast! This is BEAUTIFUL. This whole collection gives me a boost because it brings out the best in my coloring.

One thing I want to add that may be a negative to some. This is REALLY DIFFICULT to wash off makeup brushes! I am ocd about my brushes and I always like them looking brand new. With anything other than powder, I was my brushes after every use. I am having a hard time washing this off my Sigmas: F80, F82, F84 and F86. It seems to come off my F60 a lot easier. I'm not sure if it's because the bristles are fewer and less concentrated, or if these bristles are designed for heavier makeup.

Powder -Too Faced -Peach Blur Translucent Smoothing Finishing Powder – Peaches and Cream Collection

on 10/3/2017 11:37:00 PM

This is so beautiful! It gives my whole appearance something "special". I am not usually a powder-wearer, unless I absolutely need it, and then I use loose powder. I never got the hang of using pressed powder because sunscreen its a must for me, and powder usually creates an uneven, muddy, blotchy mess. My SA in Sephora begged me to try this...because she loves it so much. She told me she thinks this whole Peaches and Cream line is severely underrated and not noticed nearly enough. She said it launched at the same times as Fenty Makeup, and Fenty got all the publicity and hype, so lots of people haven't seen Peaches and Cream yet. She loves this collection and she prefers it to Fenty. I think Fenty products look beautiful, but, none of the products captured my attention like the Peaches and Cream line. For years I used to buy the "token" peach, or warm-toned lipstick, because everything was pink or mauve. Peach colors do wonders for my coloring. This powder is translucent, but it adds a subtle, matte...something (the only word I can think of is "energy", but I don't think powder can be energizing). It blends and blurs and looks amazing in indoor and outdoor light. For a "no-makeup-ish" look I use this over foundation and no other face makeup, and my skin looks perfect. This blurs fine lines and it does wonders for making pores seem nonexistent. It has a velvety texture that you can tell is tenacious just by touching it. It seems to become a part of skin, and it is just so lovely. I am tempted to put up a photo of myself, but I'm still a little shy to do that. If anything will give me the courage to do it though, this powder will be in the mix! I apply with brushes or sponges, depending upon the level/type of coverage I want. This look marvelous on eyelids too. It's extremely versatile.

Liquid -Too Faced -Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation

I have extremely oily skin. I have been using ELDW for the past year and it works great out of all the foundations I have used, however, downside is that it is very "makeup looking" or "fake looking" so I tried the ELDW Water nude foundation which is nice but it gets too dewy and does not stay put all day. So far I have been mixing the two but I am always on the hunt for something better. When I heard about the Too Faced Peach Perfect Matte foundation, I just had to try it. It lasts all day and is very transfer resistant. My face does tend to get dewy after 4-5 hours. But my face generally gets really dewy after 4-5 hours even with ELDW. I have used this foundation through a 12 hour shift in a busy retail setting and it has stayed put. At the end of my 12 hours I do look oily but not too greasy. I think with a good setting powder, setting spray, and some blotting this can become my new HG foundation. So far I have been using this foundation on and off for two weeks. Will definitely update more information when I wear it more.

Pros:
Longlasting
Oil controlling (4+hrs on extremely oily skin)
Lightweight
Large color selection
Great in flash photography

Cons:
Peach smell

Primer/ Corrector -Too Faced -Hangover Rx Replenishing Face Primer

on 10/3/2017 2:17:00 PM

This product did absolutely NOTHING for me. It's like I had nothing on my face. I have dry/dehydrated skin, and I would apply it on top of moisturizer. It didn't help with hydration, didn't help with the application, didn't make my makeup last longer. It did absolutely NOTHING. I kept giving it chances but eventually I returned it to Sephora.

Liquid -Too Faced -Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation

I love this foundation in summer! It's full coverage (but a great demi-matte finish), so finding a match was fun. I'm around NW20 in the summer, and I settled on vanilla, which is still more yellow than I'd like, but the shade matches otherwise. I only like this applied with a BeautyBlender, fingers look too heavy. Between this and Born This Way, I prefer BTW, but I *adore* the scent of the Peach Perfect. I also love the packing. The plastic tube with a pump (like ItCC or UD One and Done) is nice because it's more durable than glass bottles, takes up less room, and is easy to travel with. All foundations should come in this packaging!

Liquid -Too Faced -Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation

I buy myself a new foundation every year for my birthday, and I'm very glad I chose this one. I have VERY oily and acne-prone skin, so I'd mostly been using Estee Lauder Double Wear for the past year. Double Wear will always have a place in my heart for its insane coverage and oil-controlling properties. I bought it at a time when my acne was awful, and it served me very well. However, my skin has thankfully cleared since then, leaving me with acne and scarring only along my jawline. The Double Wear became too much for an all-over foundation, so I decided to go for a medium-coverage option. Enter Peach Perfect.

First of all, the packaging on this foundation is ideal. It comes in a tube with a pump, keeping your product fresh and eliminating the risk of breaking a bottle. Also, for $36 (as of this writing), you get A LOT of product: 1.6 ounces, as opposed to the standard one ounce. I think it's also worth mentioning that this foundation is good for 18 months. (Double Wear, just for the heck of it, expires in 24 months.)

As advertised, Peach Perfect is a medium-coverage foundation and can build up to mostly-full-coverage with a second layer. I buff this foundation in with a Real Techniques Expert Face brush. I have not tried this foundation with a Beauty Blender, though as a general rule, a wet sponge will sheer anything out. I will say you don't have a heck of a lot of working time with this foundation; it dries pretty quickly, so apply a section at a time. Peach Perfect is about 95 percent matte. It isn't luminous or dewy by any stretch, but on its own, it just isn't *as* matte as my Double Wear. Peach Perfect, especially left unpowdered, is pretty natural-looking for a matte foundation. It doesn't look dry on my skin when applied with a brush, and I usually use 2.5 to three pumps to cover my face and acne patches. That may seem like a lot for one application, but one pump doesn't dispense a lot of product. Unless you want to build this to full-coverage on your entire face every day, I can't see anyone running out of this quickly.

I wear this foundation over Benefit Porefessional. I top it with Coty Airspun Powder and Cover FX Mattifying Setting Spray. For oily skin, it's a winning combination; my natural oils do come through by the end of the day, but I'm never left looking like an oil-slick. Those of you with normal, dry, and combination skin could probably get away with leaving this foundation unpowdered or only powdering in your oily areas. With my oily skin, I'd never dream of leaving my face unpowdered, but since this foundation dries down all the way, I don't think you'd have any problem blending bronzer, blush, contour, etc. on top of it without setting powder.

If you're looking for a medium-coverage, lightweight, mostly-matte foundation that can withstand oily skin (with the right supporting cast of products), Too Faced Peach Perfect is a great option and a great buy.

Lips -Too Faced -Chocolate Honey

on 10/1/2017 5:56:00 PM

I want to preface this by saying that I really wanted this product to work and I used to love the too faced brand, but it seems their quality has heavily faltered lately.

I have the melted line in 3 colours: chocolate milkshake, chocolate honey and melted strawberry, all of which seem to do the same thing to my lips.

It looks great when you first put it on; opaque colours with a pretty velvet finish, but throughout the day the product will bunch up and become a gloopy mess. Especially in the inner and outer corners of the lip, even when I don't eat or drink anything. I've tried to make this product work countless times, but no matter what at the end of the day it will always flake, bunch up and make your lips look cracked and disgusting. Reapplying over it seems to cover some of the monstrosity, but then it just looks like you have a gross looking coat over your lips near the edges. Perhaps a lip primer will help with this problem? Alas, that would mean spending more money on what a product should already be doing as it claims. It's really unfortunate as most of the colours in these lines are super pretty, but just don't quite work throughout the day.

The colors are really pretty, smells great, and Ilooked forward a lot to getting this palette when they permantly released it. I just feel like the colors could be a lot more pigmented. Even with a white base the colors don’t show up on my lids as much as I’d like them to.

Bronzers -Too Faced -Sweetie Pie Radiant Matte Bronzer – Peaches and Cream Collection

The new Sweetie Pie Radiant Matte Bronzer is a new addition to the Too Faced Peaches and Cream makeup collection. This definitely has the peach scent- it is very noticeable but does fade over wear time. The look is very natural. I am wearing this in the video over my Too Faced Chocolate Soliel Bronzer- which is my go to bronzer. Being a Minnesotan, we are almost always rather pale, which I don't mind since I'd rather skip as much sun damage as possible.

Lipstick -Too Faced -Peach Kiss Matte Lipstick

The Too Faced Peach Kiss Moisturize Matte Long Wear Lipstick Is a decent Lipstick if you don't mind the flavor/ perfume in it. It tastes like artificial Peach flavoring. The formula is a non drying Matte lipstick, but I will emphasize that I didn't find drying in the least. i do wish that the peach taste was less noticeable, but it's a peach theme so what can you do...







Palettes -Too Faced -I Want Kandee: Candy Eyes

The I Want Kandee Candy Eyes Eyeshadow Palette is a well thought out palette that contains matte, shimmer, and sparkling eye shadow colors. The nice thing is that this contains some great light colors that you can use for blending and the browbone area, dark colors that you can use for the lash line, and then many colors in-between for your eye lid. The faint scent of candy is included but not overwhelming, thankfully!
